Thurmont, MD and the surrounding countryside is some of the most beautiful in Maryland. Excellent hikes in the Catoctin Mountains lead to spectacular views over the Monacacy River Valley. Both the Valley and the Mountains have great roads for cycling, where your pace is slow enough you can appreciate the scenery & wildlife. See the beauty of the old farms- a disappearing way of life in America, but one of hard work and satisfaction.
